Set in the opfficer's dug out on the Western Front in 1918, Captain Stanhope has in a short time morphed from school captain to army captain, becoming a man far older than his years. Into this tense arena comes Raleigh, a young man who hero worshiped Stanhope at school - and is also the brother of Stanhope's fiancee.

5 x 15 Mins Pliny the Younger was a man of letters in 1st century Rome. In this 5 part rama, Hattie Naylor - who dramatised Pepys Diaries, making him accessible to a modern audience - does the same with Pliny. Pliny becomes a young man bullied by his mother, disrespected by his slaves and generally just trying to get through life, in a series of incidents recorded in Pliny's letters. Both amusing and enlightening.

In November 1603 Sir Walter Ralegh was tried for treason. Was he guilty? Why was he refused a defence lawyer? Was the jury fixed? Ralegh's trial is one of the most bizarre courtroom dramas in British history.

In 1799, Jane Austen 's aunt was accused of stealing lace. She was arrested, imprisoned and tried at the Taunton Assizes, where she faced the death sentence or transportation. In Jennifer Howarth 's play, based on the trial transcripts, Cassandra Austen follows events that reveal Georgian Bath to be a far less decorous place than it appears in her sister Jane's novels.
